An SDS sheet will tell you, for example, if you have a container of fragrance, whether the contents are flammable, toxic if swallowed, or dangerous if in contact with skin. Or can the fumes be dangerous? What chemicals in the fragrance are flagged for safety by regulatory agencies?

 

Data in an SDS sheet is a foundational component of a lower-impact product... Continue reading
